Subject: Call for Co-Coordinator Nominations!


**Feel free to cross-post!** 


Dear DLF BDAWGers,


The DLF Born Digital Access Working Group (BDAWG) is seeking 2 co-coordinators. Information on the responsibilities of the co-coordinators is available here: DLF BD Access Working Group Coordinator Responsibilities; co-coordinators generally have a suggested time commitment of about 5 hours per month.


The call is open to anyone, and we are seeking candidates with the following:


  • An interest in community-oriented work
  • A commitment to open communication and consensus-building processes
  • An interest in working with born-digital cultural heritage materials
  • A willingness to plan BD Access-relevant programming at the DLF Forum
  • The capacity to dedicate about 5 hours per month to coordination tasks


It would be ideal, but not required, if candidates had experience with group coordination work and experience attending the DLF Forum or working with DLF. Candidates do not need to be an institutional member of DLF. 


Nominate someone (it can be yourself!) to serve as co-coordinator here: DLF BD Access Working Group Co-Coordinator Nomination Form:


The nomination form will be open until December 30, after which Abbie and Danielle, the current co-coordinators, will assemble the ballot and gather more information from candidates, as needed. The community will vote on the ballot between Jan 10 and Jan 14, and the new co-coordinators will be announced in early February, with the goal of assuming leadership for the group soon after. The current co-coordinators will act as mentors during the hand-off period.

Please reach out to myself (Danielle - [log in to unmask]) or Abbie ([log in to unmask]) if you have additional questions about the role and associated responsibilities/time commitment

Many thanks,

Danielle (she/her) | BDAWG Co-Coordinator
